The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the yearly opportunity for full NISA members and affiliates to have their say on the sport, and how their National Governing Body is run.
As a result of the Articles of Association being voted through at the 2017 EGM, there are subsequently a number of Board and Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) roles to be filled. Please see the elections notifications below.
Great opportunities lie ahead for ice skating in the UK, but we need the support and involvement of our members to reach them.
2018 AGM Details
This year the AGM will be taking place on Saturday 1st September 2018 at the Jury's Inn, Nottingham.
It will commence at 12 noon, and we recommend attendees arrive by 11:30am.
You don't need to register your attendance, simply arrive on the day. If you are unable to attend, please ensure you have filled out a proxy form to cast your vote.
Can I Vote?
Any Full or Life Member with at least 13 months' membership at the date of the AGM, can vote. No more than 30 day lapse must have occured in membership. Associate Members are unable to vote.
Note - voting rights for Full Members are for the skater if they are aged 16+, or for the legal parent or guardian of the Full Member if they are aged under-16 or otherwise lack the relevant capacity.
Affiliated Clubs and Affiliated Associations of NISA can also vote (Clubs must have affiliated for the 2017-18 affiliation period before July 1st 2018).
How do I Vote?
You can cast your vote by attending the 2018 AGM or by proxy voting - this is the manner of voting when it cannot be done in person.
Through proxy voting a member can cast their vote on matters proposed for the AGM through either the Chair or another eligible member.
Proxy voting forms will also be placed on the website 28 days in advance of the AGM, and can be completed and sent to the Independent Scrutineers, Botham Accounting, to arrive at least 5 clear working days in advance of the AGM. In practice, as the week preceding the AGM includes a Bank Holiday, proxy voting forms must reach Botham Accounting by 17:00 on Friday 24th August 2018.
Any individual can only be a candidate for one position. They cannot stand for more than one Technical Advisory Committee position, nor can they stand for more than one Board position, nor can they stand for both a Board and a Technical Advisory Committee position.
In this folder you will find the notice of AGM including the agenda, proxy and postal forms for members and affiliates, draft minutes from the 2017 AGM and EGM and accounts for the NISA 2016-17 financial year.
Please note: There are separate forms and closing dates for postal and proxy voting. Both of which should be sent to Botham Accounting, the address of which is highlighted on the forms.
It should also be noted postal voting is the only way to vote for TAC and Board positions, it is not possible to vote for these in person at the AGM.
The proxy voting form is for other resolutions on the agenda. These can also be voted for in person at the AGM.
To vote on all resolutions on the agenda without attending the AGM, members and affiliates will therefore need to submit BOTH postal and proxy forms.
